I really like the light through the back of our house in the evenings. Of course, now we keep the curtains closed between the hours of 2:00 and 8:00 pm because of the boiling alive factor, but I usually reopen them when the sun fades so we can see the Light.
It seems pretty stupid, or unimportant, to care about something like that, but it just makes me feel calm and happy and that's good enough for me.
Now, in the mornings, the front porch is the place to be. In fact, all times of day the porch is the place to be because of this view to begin with:
And then the shade and the breeze in the afternoons and evenings.
Our house looked like this in the middle of Nate's yard work. He put in 15 hour days every Saturday in May and on his birthday, along with his dad's help, and worked until about 9 most nights and made everything perfect and ready for grass. He made these steps on the steep side of the house and we were like, "Cool."
And then on Monday we laid the sod and now we're like, "COOOOOOOOOL!!"
We love Charlotte.
